At the end of August, I visited my sister in College Station (where she is getting her PhD, that smarty pants!). She had this winery on her to-visit list, so I graciously agreed to help her check it off. So generous, right?
These photos don’t nearly do justice to how HOT it was. You’ve never felt hot until you’ve felt it in Texas in August. But we managed to survive long enough to take a little walk around the grounds and marvel at the 7000 turtles that live in their pond. Seriously, 7000.
We finished off the afternoon by escaping inside for tastings and cheese in the wine room, and then some salads, creme brulee and more wine in the restaurant. We had all five food groups covered (recap: wine, cheese, salad, wine, dessert), also managing to prove that you can eat at a winery for (relatively) cheap and not leave hungry.
Overall, a great time was had by all – but I will say that for all prior reunions that happen in August, she’ll be coming to ME! It is just too hot in Texas for anyone’s good at that time of year.
